Escape to the Maldives

  • Written by Maya Mahir

As the days become shorter, and the summer sunshine fades in the UK, warmer climes beckon; why not indulge in a picnic on a secluded sandbank, in the Maldives, surrounded by shimmering turquoise waters, not in the rain, on your own private sun-soaked beach?

Treat yourself to an unforgettable picnic and dine on the sandbanks beneath leaning palm trees or on your own private island… With a range of tasty delicacies, you're sure to experience a picnic like no other!

Guests can select from a range of delectable options, from charcuterie platters, refreshing gazpacho, crisp vegetable rice paper rolls, gourmet sandwiches, hand-made Sushi, to a selection of tropical fruits, or for a luxury touch, chilled champagne and fresh oysters; combined with a stunning scenery to ensure a truly perfect picnic.

Idyllic location, picturesque surroundings and culinary delights – sounds perfect, right? Sail across the Indian Ocean on a traditional Maldivian boat, Dhoni, to a secluded sandbank. Arrive in awe and be greeted with a luxurious hamper for you and your loved one to enjoy.
